A torch song is traditionally a sentimental love song in which the singer laments an unrequited or lost love; providing a shoulder upon which the audience rests their collective broken hearts.

And we've all been there.

“Torchbearer” is a brand new show celebrating this genre, featuring the renowned recording artist and jazz noir male contralto, Graham J, accompanied by Ian Elmslie on the piano, formerly of award-winning cabaret duo Katrina and The Boy and author of the acclaimed book A Marvellous Party.

The evening features songs that are all traditionally sung by women and drawn from an eclectic roll-call of songwriters, that explore the myriad of joys and woes inherent within relationships, the blissful simplicity and the dreaded complications of love.

From off-Broadway to inner city bedsit, from bar-room to ballroom, from reimagined standards to original compositions, from laughter to tears and everything in between... expect the unexpected.


Graham J is a native of County Dublin in Ireland. He began singing and piano lessons st a young age. His unique contralto voice and highly emotive singing have garnered him a large following internationally. Earning him many plaudits from the jazz and cabaret press. Acclaimed music journalist Larry Flick describes him as having “A gift from God” and praised him saying “You make pop music serious. You’re a real artist”. 2018 was a busy year for Graham.
